A bear walks into a grocery store. While that may sound like the start of joke, it's what really happened Saturday in Ketchikan, Alaska.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The Ketchikan Daily News reports that a small black bear cub walked in the front door of Tatsuda's IGA. The scared animal found its way to a produce cooler, where it made a mess.

Meat department manager Joe Stollar filmed the bear's capture. He says the little bear was just trying to hide.

A customer captured the bear and let it loose from the store's back door onto a trail leading to the woods. Authorities suspect it was an orphaned bear since its mother wasn't nearby.

Several thousand dollars of ruined produce was donated to a livestock owner.
